The Present Time is a collection of the most reactionary essays by Thomas Carlyle. In them he critiques democracy, laissez-faire economics, and the idea of progress with unmatched savagery and erudition.

This volume of his most radical thought also includes an exhaustive glossary, finally making Carlyle accessible to non-specialists. Carlyle is one of the towering figures of illiberal thought, and this collects his strongest material into a compact volume.
